CrawlMaster BL 540 Stubby 10-Pole Sensorless Rock Crawler Motor 2700kv


Short motor, Smooth Startup, Sensorless inrunner reliability!

When you need a smooth and efficient sensorless motor but don’t want the noise or spinning can of a Revolver, the Crawlmaster 540 Stubby delivers! This 10 pole topology is tuned for competition and discerning drivers, with refined startup and low end control you expect from Holmes! The Stubby is shorter and lighter than standard 540s without sacrificing power or torque, it is an optimized performance choice in the inrunner style.
Top features include very controllable startup, higher efficiency than outrunners (but at lower torque density), sealed can design for messy use, 8 way mounting for the perfect install, beefy solder tabs for lower resistance, and oversized bearings to prevent premature failure.
